I did see an instruction video by Michael Adcock how to screw in the pins and the counter-clockwise is something I picked up and do all the time.
Still amazed that I am so careful with my Panerai watches considering I did everything with my other watches and never even thought something might happen with it, that has nothing to do with the price I had to pay for the Panerai watches, that is a one time experience when you get your credit card bill, the next cycle that problem is gone
thanks for your advise!
Have a great weekend!
